30K on my 08, any Qs?
Just passed 30K on my 08. The rear shock blew at 20K miles. I've replaced the brake pads a few times and the chain once. Been through some tires. Two spark plugs. One clutch cable. Some bulbs. Have a thermobob. Flushed the brakes twice in the rear, once in front. No problems really - "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" - family motto. I adjusted the valves at 7K I think and haven't since. I need to do that. All the other problems were caused by me.
Lots of superficial mods, but nothing drastic.
So, I thought it might be interesting. I am obsessive about oil changes and chain maintenance. I did the doo early. I adjust regularly. KLX needle mod. Um... Uni Filters. Rotella.
Bike's treated me real well so far. If you want to know about anything specific, holler.
